The teaser trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's topical war drama Zero Dark Thirty does its job effectively...while showing very little.
Writer Mark Boal extensively researched the film which centers on an elite Black Ops team's attempt to assassinate Osama bin Laden almost a decade ago, an effort that came very close to succeeding. His death last year meant a few rewrites.
Joel Edgerton Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kyle Chandler, Edgar Ramirez, Tom Hardy, Chris Pratt, Guy Pearce Jennifer EhleHarold Perrineau Fares Fares Nash Edgerton Frank Grillo Mark Duplass and Mark Strong also star.
Boal, Bigelow and Megan Ellison are producing the film.
The pic has December 19th release date.
